To: Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Sheriff
Demand that Sheriff Joe Arpaio Resign!
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is currently under investigation by the FBI, the Department of Justice, and the State of Arizona for numerous violations, charges of $100 million in illegally misspent funds, abuse of power, and corruption. Sheriff Joe should do the right thing and resign.
Why is this important?
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is currently the subject of FBI, United States Department of Justice, and Federal Grand Jury investigations for civil rights violations and abuse of power, and he is the defendant in a federal class action suit for racial profiling. He and his department have been named in over 27,000 lawsuits, and his department has been accused of mismanaging over $100 million in county funds. While the Sheriff has pursued media attention and publicity stunts, violent crime rates have risen in Maricopa County. Our already cash-strapped state cannot afford to pay for the Sheriff's misdeeds any longer. We call on him to do the right thing and resign.
